This is the official Maybe-Dead Hawke Party discussion post!

Whether you're on your fourth playthrough of Inquisition, whether you're staring longingly at the newest DLC, or whether you only played Origins that one time and just really like the porn (*cough*mod mornelithe*cough*), we've all got something to say about Dragon Age -- and this is the place to say it. Who are your forever fave rare pairs? Do you prefer default protagonists or do you spend hours in the character creator? What kinks do you need to prompt on Sept. 6?

Life's little questions, and we all want to talk about them.

This Discussion Post is an anon-only zone; get your Dragon Age on without the burdensome encumbrance of usernames! The exception to the anon-only rule is the Introduction Thread, where you can introduce yourself and meet fellow players.

Username on DW/AO3/Tumblr: I'm roguepositivity ( on Tumblr! I also run fyeahsera and fyeahvivienne.
Writer, artist, prompter, spectator?: I'm planning on prompting and writing. I haven't written fanfiction in a while so I'm excited!
Favorite Dragon Age quest: It's a tie between the Winter Palace in DAI and the assassin quests in Denerim.
Most hated Dragon Age quest: The Fade in DAO!
How long you've been in the fandom: Only about a year. I got DAO when it was free on Origin last year.
Favorite DA protagonist and villain: Hm, that's tough. I think Calpernia's my favorite villain, and I'd have to go with my Dalish Inquisitor as my favorite protagonist. I had a really good handle on his character from the start and he was fun to play.
Least favorite: Oghren annoys me, so I'll pick him as least favorite protagonist. Least favorite villain would be the sloth demon from the Fade in DAO, just because I really really hated that quest.
What would your dream DLC be about?: I'd love to explore the Game more! Especially the intersection of the upper echelons of the Circle with Orlesian nobility. I like political intrigue and spying.

Oh, wow, WOW, am I exctied about this? Yup. I guess I am.

So, *clears throat*, I'm little_abyss on AO3, and fictionalgraveyard on tumblr. I guess I'll be spectating, for the most part, but I can't rule out that I won't write if there's something catches my eye. I'm in the middle of a big AU project, but it's starting to feel like homework, so... yeah.

My most favourite DA quest? I still get gooshy about Wayward Son, the Feynriel quest from DAII. So emotions, probably because my canon Hawke likes to think he invented the term 'pro-mage'. My least favourite quest is Wicked Eyes, Wicked Hearts from DAI, I want to give everyone at that stupid ball a big punch in the jeans.

To that end, while we're talking least faves, I gotta confess, I don't love Sebastian. The whole Chantry system just leaves me cold, so I do a bit of an 'eh' shrug when he's about. Lucius Corin or maybe the Mother are my love-to-hate-em villains, Danarius is my least favourite (I just loathe that dude, though it is a good piece of storytelling). It's more difficult to chose a favourite protagonist - probably, if you twisted my arm, I'd say either Anders or... Does Dagna count? She's lovely, I adore her.

I think I got my dream DLC with the wardrobe thing... no more oddly clingy Skyhold pajamas! *celebration ensues*
I've been 'in' the fandom only really since the beginning of this year, but I've loved (like, with an undeniable firey flame) these games (and all the other stuff) since I discovered it with Origins.

Writer, artist, prompter, spectator?: Prompter/spectator. I'm also a writer but I'm knee deep in the beginning of law school right now, which isn't conducive to creative writing. :(
Favorite Dragon Age quest: idk, I morbidly really like the Deep Roads bit in DA2
Most hated Dragon Age quest: Walking around the puzzle rooms at the end of DA:I. Wow I hated that so much.
How long you've been in the fandom: Since DA2 dropped.
Favorite DA protagonist and villain: THIS IS HARD. Fave in DA2 is probably Anders. Fave in DA:I is Bull. I haven't played Origins.
Least favorite: I honestly cannot stand Isabela. I tried to, but I just don't like her at all :(
What would your dream DLC be about?: Orzammar or Tevinter. We don't get to see these places, really, and I'd love to.

MAN I screwed up that coding, my apologies! I couldn't fix it once it was posted :|

Law school is going pretty well, thank you! It's a lot of reading and thinking and not a lot of creativity, sadly. I look forward to being able to read some great fic here to relax :3

It's one of the most interesting places! I love the long quest into the abandoned place outside it--one of those times when the game was genuinely scary as fuck.

I wish I had enjoyed Origins enough to keep at it! I'll have to try again at some point.

RIGHT? That is definitely at the top of my "scariest video game moments" list.

I've heard that but I honestly could not get into Origins at all. The gameplay is very difficult for me and also I just...didn't care |D
